According to Yuvraj, Virat is good but cannot score goals. He also has a piece of advice for Jasprit Bumrah and Pandya. “Jasprit Bumrah shouldn't play football. Hardik Pandya is a really bad footballer. He too needs to improve his football skills.” “Rohit Sharma is a horrible soccer player. He just passes the ball and then doesn't move. He is always standing in an off-side position. Zaheer Khan is also like Rohit, barely wants to run on the football ground. Ashish Nehra, I would advise shouldn't play football because every time he plays, he gets injured," he continued. When asked who according to him is the best football player, pat came the answer, “MS Dhoni.”
